Been busy retooling boats for the warm and busy season and enjoying a few good weather trips in between the fronts..we have been all over doing all kinds of fishing when we can get out..big story has been the consistent tuna bite..we have had great success with 80-120 pound yellowfins on our day and night trips as well as an occasional wahoo. I have been doing a good bit of grouper fishing the last few trips and have found a few decent snapper as well..looks to be a great season..we fished some live bottom this week that kept the trip ion constant bites..Also just fished the leading edge of an eddy off the Gulf stream Loop Current..we had been waiting for it to get close enough to Louisiana and last week the 80 degree blue water was withing 40 miles of the pass..tons of trash floating wads of bait but not alot of action..saw plenty of flying fish and have hooked and boated a few tuna and small wahoo on the line..we will be going back this week and hope for a better catch..we just ordered a 36 ft Twin Vee catamaran and expect a mid May delivery..it will be our new boat for day tuna trips to the deepwater platforms well offshore..Paradise Outfitters - 985-845-8006
